The Gene Therapy Program (GTP) is entering a new era of unprecedented opportunity with the great potential to reshape the face of medicine as we know it. Our discoveries have set the stage for successful treatments and possibly even cures for devastating genetic diseases.
The laboratory of Dr. James Wilson, at GTP of the University of Pennsylvania, has been a leader in the development of innovative vector technology for close to three decades. We have emerged as the ‘go-to’ organization for public and private partners, who want to participate in the gene therapy space. Currently, we are positioned to lead another round of vector innovation and establish pre-clinical and clinical proof-of-concept in therapeutic applications of in-vivo genome editing.
We are currently seeking a Contract Administrator A who will partner with the Executive Director, Legal Affairs (EDLA), GTP leadership, and with Penn Center for Innovation (PCI) to support the execution of contracts as they pertain to research within GTP. You will draft, revise, and assemble high-quality contracts using standard templates. The types of contracts include, but not limited to Confidential Disclosure Agreements, Material Transfer Agreements, Sponsored Research Agreements, and Consulting Agreements. You will work with scientists to gather scientific data that needs to be included in the agreements. Once documents are in a final state, you will diligently work with GTP and PCI leadership to obtain the appropriate signatures for the contracts to be effectively executed. You will support various legal projects as directed by the EDLA.
As a top candidate, you will have a strong background in contract management, with some familiarity with pre-clinical or clinical research & development.
